New Mexico/ Colorado

I would feel guilty going to all kind of inferior places, crappy towns, Disney stuff without a visit to the Mesa Ruins in Colorado (close to New Mexico.

As these ruins, left over from the Pueblo "Indians" of 700+ years ago, are a bit in the middle of nowhere, this needs some planning.

Flying into Alburquerque or Santa Fe, NM, would mean sa 3-4 hour drive, but also could be not the worst combination. Visiting Alberquerque for a day and have a scenic ride, visiting a few "ghost towns" on the way could make it a great long weekend.
